Photos of Iranian border guards holding Ilham Aliyev in sight

On November 16, 2020, President of Azerbaijan Ilham Aliyev and his wife Mehriban visited the Jebrail region and visited two Khudaferin bridges built in the Middle Ages across the Araks River, located on the border with Iran. After that, a photo appeared on the Web of Iranian border guards watching the movement of the couple and holding it in sight.

It should be noted that these bridges are located at a distance of 800 meters from each other. The 15-span is in working order, and the 11-span is destroyed. Only three middle parts are left of it and it is called “sonyg kerpyu” (“broken bridge”). The couple walked near the existing structure.

This territory recently returned under the control of Baku and many residents of Azerbaijan were really worried about the appearance of the DRG Armenians in this area. At the same time, when photographs taken by the Iranians through the PSO-1 telescopic sight mounted on the Dragunov sniper rifle (SVD) appeared on social networks, the Azerbaijani public became even more agitated. The fact is that relations between Azerbaijan and Iran want to leave the best.

During the conflict in Karabakh, Iran pulled large armored forces to the Azerbaijani border, as well as many air defense systems. This was a response to the frequent falls of artillery shells of the opposing sides on the territory of the Islamic Republic.

    Tehran had previously offered Baku to discuss these issues, but the Azerbaijanis refused to discuss, since they did not control the territory.

    Is this correct information? The fact is that several years ago, the signing of an agreement between Iran and Azerbaijan on the construction of a hydroelectric power station was blamed on I. Aliyev as a betrayal. The opposition then screamed so loudly that even in Yerevan one could hear

    Approved. Iran and Azerbaijan to build 2 hydroelectric power plants

      The opposition can squeal as much as it wants, it has such a job. In the 90s, Iran asked for permission to build, Baku froze - we will talk about control. Your information from 2016 only confirms what is written in the material. Both Iran and Azerbaijan want to build a hydroelectric power station. Just Gyz-Galasy. The opposition screamed because the seats were under the Armenians. And now this problem is gone. So everything is correctly stated.

        I spoke about the Khudaferin hydroelectric complex. As far as I remember, the agreement was between Azerbaijan and Iran. And then Iran took over the protection of this waterworks.
        I will not argue, because I myself did not quite understand the meaning of this agreement then. For this article, I write that Azerbaijan has NOT refused to discuss. And even signed something.

    For some reason it inspired (although the article is anonymous)

    Well, Ilham Heydarovich probably knew what would appear in the lenses and sights on the adjacent side! yes
    But he took a risk, could not resist the joyful temptation to walk with his wife along the most extreme limit of the liberated native land, along the coast near the ancient bridge - the President-Liberator personally "showed the flag" to the Iranians! hi
    I think I understand the feelings and emotions that overwhelmed him (we ourselves would have freed ourselves from the stifling Russophobic oppression of the Washington occupation of multinational Ukraine!)! winked

    Are the Iranian border guards provided with a sight with the possibility of photographing?
    Like, even if this is the president and his wife in the frame, which is hard to believe, then most likely this is a photo shop.)

    Seriously, the president knew perfectly well where he was going and was taking his spouse. It is the act of demonstrating your strength and your victory.
